I had someone replace my bathroom ceiling, and I was just sanding and painting. I found that the corner of the drywall is broken off & there is also another gap that seems a bit big for caulking. I think I can maybe just add a little compound on gap, but I'm not sure how to fix the corner given I can't put anything on the shower tile. Any suggestions (other than having to schedule a guy to come back)?

  • Welcome to DIYSE. It's not clear what I'm looking at. Is that the wall-ceiling junction, or is there a tub in the photo?

I added compound in the gap and that seems OK. I folded up some paper drywall tape into the corner to fill the depth, and then put compound on that too. Both had some mesh tape in there so I think it will be OK. Thanks to anyone who has been giving this thought!

  • Normally you'd fill void with compound to make it more solid, but with the mesh tape it should be ok.

  • I'd have called the guy back as much as I hate mudding drywall, but I think you did well.
